Australia Day dawned “FAB, Scott” – sunny and windless. So we did a loop out west, stopping at Newstead for a coffee.
The joint was jumping due to the Newstead Live Music Festival. We chatted and listened to some music. The Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club rolled in – there was one good-looking bike amongst them:
We headed out over Tullaroop Dam to Clunes for lunch.
Leaving Clunes, we could see smoke in the distance and, as we entered the gullies approaching Daylesford, we could smell it and visibility was affected. However, once through town it was obvious that the fire was well to the north of us, so we high-tailed home to put the butterflied Greek lamb on the barbie. Happy Australia Day!
